Here is what I got in an email today: Just passing it along..... ???
According to the report obtained by Itchmo, (available on the site) the results have been certified by a forensic toxicologist. The testing method detects concentrations in excess of 0.1%. We have obtained a copy of the toxicology report and you can see for yourself. We have remove personal information for privacy reasons and a correct lot number was obtained.
We have contacted Iams and we're waiting on their response. Iams Large Breed does not list rice protein concentrate or wheat gluten as ingredients.
We cannot stress this point enough: This test was performed on a sample from an opened bag. We do not know if this is an isolated case of contamination before or after the sale, or if it is widespread.
This information requires verification and we are asking for your help.
Itchmo is asking you to find an unopened 20 lb. bag of Iams Large Breed dry dog food that matches the lot number: 260608 70574173 F4 US30940 with the expiration date of 6/26/08.
